"Rosenberg's Recommended String Improvisations"

compiled by Jean-Michel Van Schouwburg, Director Archives Sonores du Fonds Rosenberg, Brussels  and following Johannes Rosenberg’s Chamber Music Classification. This list is focused on string instruments' musics and was selected by the Rosenberg auto-archive system revived by a member of the scientific staff of the Rosenberg Museum, formerly located in Violin, Slovakia.
Johannes Rosenberg was a legendary violinist, visionary composer and freak-out athlete ahead of his time. Informations about Johannes Rosenberg’s life, works and memorabilia could be found here :   www.jonroseweb.com

1 commentaire:

  1. Kent Carter trio Wilisau Suites with Carlos Zingaro and François Dreno undoubtly because Johannes Rosenberg had once a serious argument with a famous composer with the same family name (Elliott) because JR was performing this composer's Quatuor no 1 in Moldavia using fake scores with his own enlighted creative re-writings of some parts, "relative" instruments and experimental robot performers. Note from Rosenberg 's Archives team.
